CR5 RADIUS Bass Guitar, NXT4 Upright Bass
Kool and the Gang, New Power Generation/ Prince, 'Lil Wayne, Isley Brothers, Deniece Williams and Solo Artist
The NS CR5 RADIUS bass guitar has to be one of the most solid basses adn it always stays consistent live and in the studio.  The 18 volt pre-amp and piezo save my life so balanced and never hurts my back.  I never get tired with this bass.
